Vikings cornerback Jeff Gladney has turned himself in and posted a $10,000 bond after facing a charge of third degree felony family violence assault, according to J.D. Miles of CBS 11 News.

If convicted, Gladney faces 2-10 years in prison from an incident that allegedly occurred on April 2. Detectives documented bruising on the head, ears and torso of the victim. The 22-year-old woman said she was in a relationship with Gladney. Gladney is accused of hitting and choking the victim. He is also accused of dragging her by the hair, while driving, with her outside his vehicle.

Gladney, 24, is coming off his rookie season in the NFL after being taken by the Minnesota Vikings in the first round of last year’s draft.
